Wisdom and Instruction for Nigerian Leaders 

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Proverbs 1:7

God is not man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it Numbers 23:19

 

The secret of contentment

"Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me"  (Phil 4:11)

Secret of Blessing unspeakable

What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin ( sin against the ten commandments ) that grace may abound? Roman 6:1

And if you faithfully obey the voice of the Lord your God, being careful to do all his commandments ( the ten commandments ) that I command you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, if you obey the voice of the Lord your God. Blessed shall you be in the Deuteronomy 28:1 - 28:3

For all who rely on works (obey fully the ten commandments) of the law are under a curse; for it is written, “Cursed be everyone who does not abide by all things written in the Book of the Law, and do them. ” Now it is evident that no one is justified before God by the law, for “The righteous shall live by faith. “ But the law is not of faith, rather “The one who does them shall live by them. ” Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us – for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree” – so that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we might receive the promised Spirit through faith Galatians 3:10 - 3:14

Warning for Our Leaders

All things are lawful, but not all things are profitable All things are lawful, but not all things edify. 24 Let no one seek his own good, but that of his neighbor. 1corinthians 10: 23-24

Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. 8 For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. 9 Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary. 10So then, while we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, and especially to those who are of the household of the faith. Galatians 6: 7 -10

and to make it your ambition to lead a quiet life and attend to your own business and work with your hands, just as we commanded you, 12 so that you will behave properly toward outsiders and not be in any need. 1 Thessalonians 6:11-12

But do not let this one fact escape your notice, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years like one day. 9 The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance 2 peter 3:8-9

I pray the good Lord grant us all contentment in any and every circumstance. Amen
